Academic/Scholarly Research & Writing Information/Resources

Regis University is committed to intellectual integrity in its academic pursuits. Sanctions may, therefore, be imposed by the College for Professional Studies faculty or schools for cheating (defined as using inappropriate sources of information on a test) or plagiarism (defined as presenting as one’s own, the ideas, words, or products of another). Such sanctions may include a failing grade on the assignment, failure of the course, or expulsion of the student from the course or the department.
